Diesel generator does not working - Taylor Skid Mount Diesel Generator Set 30 kW

    I might be able to help you, but I need to ask you a few questions first.

    1/ Does the engine run? (silly I know but you don't clarify wether it runs or is not producing power).

    2./ If running do you get any readings on the guages and what guages do you have.

    3/ Is there a main breaker on the generator housing or control box?

    As an electrician I fix generators all the time, and the above are the usual first steps in troubleshooting a genset.

    Look forward to hearing back from you.

Please give more info, Diesel generators are pretty reliable but because of the safeties it can make it a little harder to diagnose. Check the oil level, see if the fuel filter is full, the radiator and reservoir are full, and that the air filter is clean. If you still have a no start then it could be due to air in a fuel line or inside the injection pump, or one of your safety sensors are malfunctioning. Depending on which model you own you may have an electric or mechanical fuel pump. You may want to see if its working.Well good luck, please let me know if I can help.

Finding a manual for a 50-year old diesel generator will be difficult. However, if it needs service I would look online for a commercial service provider who has been in business for many years and is experienced in diesel generators. Look online for generator repair companies. While it's still unlikely they'll have a manual for it, most likely they will still be able to provide service for it. A Google search came up with this site: Good luck

My tahoe 7000 diesel generator shuts down randomly, however it will restart

Diesel will not shut off for any reason other than fuel supply. Check the injector pump and fuel pump.

Why unit keeps shutting down after it starts.

Your question is general without specific details. Any one of many things will cause your generator engine to stop running.

Is this question about a Kipor KDE5000TA? If so, your generator is powered by a diesel engine. There are safety shut downs built into the generator to protect the generator head and engine. Do you have any fault codes showing on your control panel display screen? (Trouble codes P-01 through P-05 will be displayed if there's a detected fault)

If you have no fault codes, then you likely have a fuel problem. Do the obvious:
  1. Visually check the fuel level in your tank. DO NOT rely on your fuel gauge. It may be stuck or otherwise not working.
  2. If you have fuel, check your fuel filter. It may be clogged. If your fuel filter is good, you may have water contamination.
  3. Drain your tank and refill with fresh #2 diesel fuel. I use "Diesel 911" with a biocide to prevent water contamination and bacteria growth in my fuel.
  4. Make certain your fuel oil supply and return lines are clear, not leaking, and the fittings are tight.
I know I'm shotgunning, peppering the target. However, I don't have enough information to zero in on a specific area where the problem could be. Good luck!
